Reviews for The Beast
Stoic chapter 1 . 11/3/2006
Very interesting.

We're left to wonder about why this woman wanted to be with someone so destructive when another man who loved her was willing to stay by her side. If the other man is truly a monster, or just like one. If both characters are the same man. Excellent.

I would have liked this to have been simpler than it is- Not including the woman's intention for being with "the beast", but rather just the conflict the beast faces, as you have done already. I feel as though introducing the feelings of the woman brings an aspect to this that either is irrelevant or requires more writing. Take time to develop one character, and if more come, don't let length scare you, continue writing until you feel each person as they were real.

This is a very ambiguous and somewhat mysterious piece. Quite delightful. Keep up the good work!
